Flights to Cape Verde

There are several flight options to Cape Verde, direct weekly flights, or indirect daily flights. See more information on Cape Verde flights

Option two - discover the Cape Verde Islands before you sail away

Spend a night or two on Sal or another Cape Verde Islandl, then head off for Sao Vicente, where the boats will be based. Spend several nights there before boarding your Farr 65. Enjoy visiting Mindelo, Cape Verde's cultural centre with lots of restaurants, art galleries, and excellent music. Being a port, there is associated history, coupled with many passing yachts, whose crews congregate in the Yacht Club near the water front. Maybe take the opportunity to see Santa Antao on a day trip or longer on the ferry which links the two islands (one of the most remote and beautiful Cape Verde Islands). We can also book flights to Sal, Cape Verde and organise stays on any of the Cape Verde islands.
